Is not there any way to work around without using this UTF8 console
stuff? Sorry, I did not work on BFs for some time, now I tried the
current snaphost and was scared! The boxes have no borders, when using
de language, the rest of lines is cut away when a non-ASCII character
appears. Looks ugly. Who implemented this? Porridge? IMHO the stuff is
nothing but unstable, and not suitable for Woody. If I were you, I would
invest the manpower into better configuration methods (i.e. Lilo setup
which is hated by newbies) instead of trying to mary dbootstrap with
more i18n than we allready had.

 Windows is great, I used it to download Linux.
